damn beam jinxed my car :P
Ok, forget the emissions for now... the damn car died on me
'93 Civic Si , manual transmission.
I was sitting at a stop light. Light goes green and i try to go.
The car stumbles a bit like trying to start from dead stop in
second gear. I do a quick shift check to first gear (it was in
first). I rev it a bit and then get going. About 50 ft after
that turn it justs bogs out (buuuuuhhhhhhh).
I pushed clutch and step on gas nothing... its dead... no tach,
alot of idiot lights on (but i can't remember which) so i coast
into parking lot. I try to re-start. The engine is turning over
nicely but no hint of starting , no coughing, no sputtering or
any signs of firing. So i check the security dongle and watch
all the lights.
The dash lights behave as usuall, they light up i get some beeps
(6 or 8) and all the lights go off.
All the big fuses under the hood look fine.
The ignitor failed on me a couple of years ago with a similar
death but i was on the highway going 60 and i had more time to
just coast along and watch what was going on. I replace the
ignitor with Honda ignitor then.
I checked (pulled and opened) the Main Relay at that time to
check for that old style relay that required re-soldering but the
inside of mine did not look like those that needed the re-solder
job so i presumed it was ok.
So what is run down. Check for fire? then do an ignitor check if
no fire ?
is there a quick outline on how to narrow this problem down.
thanks for any helpful advice ,
